“tranquil paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

This is the best hotel ever. quiet, incredibly beautiful, lovely staff, everything is well designed and extremely stylish. food was good and reasonably priced. worth the price. we loved it. the grounds are very established with mature trees. lots of beautiful statues and walls and ponds. the rooms are well placed to be private. we stayed in a village bunglow, the cheapest, which was spacious and lovely. great outdoor shower and enormous bath looking over private courtyard. HIGHLY recommended.

Stayed July 2014

Very nice hotel located in the best part of Sanur (best beach). Breakfast is really good and part of the beautiful restaurant area is on the beach. The pool is fairly small but nice. We stayed at a village bungalow which was very nice and spacious – the outdoor bathroom and the small garden was nice additions. The restaurant was okay but if you want good food there are several places within easy walking distance (our favorite was Three Monkeys just down the street).

Tandjung Sari live up to our expetation specially the service with two housekeeping visit a day, great breakfast with lot of choices, beautiful garden and nice the villa with private garden and an outdoor shower.

We enjoyed the direct access to the beach promenade which is good for a nice walk or running exercise as it is 5 km long. There is a lot of choices for restaurant both at the main road or at the beach promenade.

I have been fortunate enough to be a guest of Propietors Tati and Wija at Tajung Sari many times over the years in the past. I can't count how many different rooms and suites I had the pleasure of residing in for weeks at a time. It was because of my time here which started my lifelong love affair with Bali and it's people. This place is nothing less than MAGICAL and I can't wait for the day to return! Bali has not only influenced the way I live my life on a daily basis - but my home in Los Angeles is modeled after the bungalows at Tujung Sari!

Room Tip: I love the two story bungalows but all are fantastic! All are steps to the beach.

Tandjung Sari Hotel gets top of 4 Stars rating from me. Having said that and given the choice of staying in any 5 Stars modern hotel in Bali, my undisputed choice would still be Tandjung Sari.
It is only here, in Asia's original boutique hotel (built in the early 60ties) where one can experience authentic Balinese lifestyle and charm. It's rustic local architecture with it's blend of simplicity and sophistication, it's gardens with it's lush varieties of plants and flowers, balinese sculptures and carvings and beachside front are all beautifully integrated within the grounds. Evenings sitting at the Bar or on the terrace looking out to sea is quite magical.
We stayed in a delightful Deluxe chalet with our own porch and little garden. Food, both western and asian cuisine is excellent . Special mention must be given to the warm service from staff...One feels it is given " from the heart "
It is here, only in Bali that the words of William Henry Davies come to my mind.
" What is this world if full of care there is no time to stand and stare"
Leisure is simple and yet so beautiful .

This is a really lovely old style of resort. It's very classic and feels like it caters for families or those of us who want a fairly chilled out vacation.

Some of the rooms/bathrooms have been re-done - mine hadn't but I liked it, it had a very vintage 70s vibe. Very clean, well-organized - solidly delicious breakfast. And right on a lovely private beach. What's not to like?

Oh and a great spa where residence get 50% off!

Room Tip: I stayed in room 11. Tucked away and quiet.

This hotel was the pioneer in the villa concept. Originally a private home, villas were added by the owner. Situated on the beach it has good views from the restaurant and you can eat on the beach if you wish. The staff is accommodating although the service could be faster at the restaurant. We stayed at villa 11 which could have used a bit of updating but was certainly nice and charming. The location of the room was good.

Room Tip: No fitness center.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Tandjung Sari was opened in 1962 and began as an extension of the family home of Indonesian proprietor Wija Wawo-Runtu. The hotel was named Tandjung Sari (cape of flowers) and initially developed as Bali's very first boutique property to be managed as a small family business catering to the needs of a privileged clientele. The scale of the entire complex was purposely kept low rise and the articulation of space together with the rambling indirectness of the path ways has generated a relaxed, leisurely pace. Operational for nearly half of a century, Tandjung Sari showcases an eclectic collection of rare Balinese and Dutch colonial artifacts as a tribute to the glorious past. ... more   less
